Almost the entire built-up area is defined as a conservation area, and the parish also contains some ancient woodland at Ram's Wood. The village is home to independent prep school, Old Buckenham Hall.

History

The ancient village is recorded about 1086 in Little Domesday as being within the hundred of Cosford.

The parish became part of Babergh district when it was formed on 1 April 1974 by the merger of Cosford Rural District (1882-1974) with other units of government.
